Well I saw it coming, didn't we all? Now you're bawling you eyes out but who takes the fall? Reality bites, for some more than others. So wipe that questionmark right off your face, you're despicable and it stains, yeah it stains, but the guilt don't wash away.

Now you all shake your heads and make sad TV-eyes. You gather in churches and waste time on silence. `Cause some human lives seem more worth than others, the fact of your actions they just go to show - you're despicable and it stains, yeah it stains - but the guilt don't wash away.

But it should have been you with tears in your eyes, it should have been you falling from the sky. It should have been you but instead you send in the clowns. It should have been you and I saw you decide that it could have been you and you understand why it should have been you but instead you send in the brutes...

Now they say there's a new kind of evil in town that holds nothing too sacred and noone too kind. And you stand there and stare like you can't understand that the difference between you and them is like sunshine it blinds you and it burns, yeah it burns but the guilt don't burn away.

Now you justified men of both court and crown, that speak out in public, please hold this in mind. Each motion you try, each treaty you sign, each fund you provide to assure your own might, may further deny thousands of lives and savagely rob steal and plunder the hives of those who have none. And if you where that someone, with nothing and none... you'd gladly see us come undone.

But it should have been you with tears in your eyes, it should have been you falling from the sky. It should have been you but instead you send in the clowns. It should have been you and I saw you decide that it could have been you and you understand why it should have been you but instead you send in the brutes...

Always have, always will...
